Step away from the grey swatches. Over the last year or so, the popularity of grey has started to decline and instead, the popularity of navy blue has soared knocking grey off its pedestal. The deep hues and undertones from the rich colour helps to create a timeless dramatic look and feel. To add to the sophistication of your house, SPC flooring will also add to the timeless look of your home. Whilst it isn’t a traditional wooden flooring, it certainly makes up for it in appearance with the faux natural grains and knots running through the vinyl. It is also a more cost-effective alternative to real wood and is easy to fit so your house makeover will be completed in no time.
The concept of positive space
Every space is different. Each room has a different volume as they each serve their own purpose. To utilise and make the most of each room you need to get a balance between furniture and empty space. In smaller rooms, you might want to add navy blue in a subtle way. However, in larger spaces, for example your kitchen, it gives you more space to add drama. Navy cabinets with a contrasting worktop and floor gives the wow factor making your home have a tranquil as it doesn’t need to compete for attention. In addition, a dark brown floor will help to create a subtle transition between colours and tones making the space feel more dynamic.
it is just as important to into consideration how much natural light enters into each room. When incorporating navy into your home, you might want to think about whether that is through painting the walls or using soft furnishings and décor pieces. In smaller spaces or rooms with little natural light, think about creating a contrast by using light flooring. Whether it’s a soft natural oak colour or an off-white tone. Or if you want a cosy warmth room, add yellow toned lighting with a darker floor. This will help to draw in extra light making the space more versatile. If you aren’t as daring but still want to play around with adding navy blue into your home, cushions, throws and artwork are a great way to add pops of blue but in a much less dramatic way.
Best accent colours to compliment navy blue
Firstly, you need to decide what type of navy blue you want to use. Silver and black accents work perfectly with a navy which has grey undertones running through it, on the other hand, shades of navy which has a subtle green undertone looks fabulous against white and gold accents. Think about what room you intend to incorporate navy into before deciding on what undertone to go for.
Navy has always been a classic colour so it is no wonder why it is now the most popular colour for interiors. Whether you are going all out and painting the walls or adding subtle pops of navy, the colour is the perfect addition to any size home.
